    “With a few more folk like Carmel & Kevin around - and places like An Lochta Fada - the world would be a far better place in which to live!”

    My two dogs & I stayed for two weeks and felt at home from the moment we stepped inside this spotless, stunning cottage and its beautiful, nurtured grounds. Every possible facility was on hand and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts to make us feel welcome, having worked tirelessly to renovate the property throughout 7yrs. It oozes deeply-rustic, original charm yet lacks nothing whatsoever in the way of modern-day comfort. We were absolutely thrilled with our relaxing break, and memories ...

The property

A lovely, traditional detached stone cottage located on the outskirts of Ballingeary village in County Cork.

As soon as you pull up to this Cork cottage you will be delighted with the charming stone exterior, inviting you in to this wonderful rural retreat.

The welcoming sitting room is sure to please with its cosy woodburning stove set within an exposed stone surround.

Imagine curling up in this room with a hot drink on a chilly evening, after a day exploring the rural surroundings of your Cork cottage.

Alternatively, on a summer night, why not sit outside in the pretty courtyard area or in the shared garden, enjoying a cool drink and planning your activities for the next day?

You'll be spoilt for choice of places to visit from your Cork cottage.

Close by is the picturesque National Park of Gougane Barra, which offers superb walks amidst lovely scenery and seasonal Theatre by the Lake performances.

If you fancy venturing a little further from your Cork holiday home, visit the town of Bantry, home to Bantry Bay, colourful buildings, and a whole host of shops, pubs and restaurants, or vibrant Kenmare with its rugged coastline.

Whatever you choose your cosy Cork cottage makes a delightful base to return to at the end of the day.

Take advantage of your attractive country-style kitchen and prepare a hearty meal for the family, before retiring for the night to one of the comfy bedrooms available to you.

After a good night's sleep you will be ready for a day of discovery from your superbly located Cork cottage base, with the delights of this county and neighbouring Kerry within easy reach.
